It’s that time of year again, Summer fun is coming to an end, the kids are going back to school, the weather is changing, and getting back into the everyday routines of life are inevitable. This year is a bit different because for a lot of us the kids are staying home to virtually learn. Since everyone in my family has to stay in the house and get back to routines together, I thought I’d share my simple recipe for Quick and Easy Harvest Pasta, which has been a complete game changer in assisting my family to stay on track.
In my house, the thing that is on everyone’s mind as soon as they wake up, is what’s on the food menu for the day. With so much going on in our lives, I’ve had little time to create elaborate meals like I did in the past. That’s why my go-to place to shop is ALDI, they have a large selection of quality items at a low price. With their help, I can keep meals simple, delicious, and budget-friendly since the kids are no longer receiving meals from their school anymore.
My Quick and Easy Harvest Pasta checks all of the boxes to my current needs. For bonus points, it taste best when consumed at room temperature, so members of my family can grab their portion whenever their schedule permits for lunchtime. Usually Harper and I eat lunch when Harper is done with her half day virtual school schedule. Harvey and Ivey eat their lunch together a little earlier, right before Ivey’s nap time.
